Coagulant Aids

Coagulant aids are insoluble particulate materials added to systems containing SS to enhance the solids-liquid separation. Coagulant aids are common in conjunction with inorganic coagulants, organic flocculants, or both. These particulates act as nucleating sites for larger flocs. Because of the high densities of these particulates (compared to most other SS), the settling velocities of the average floc particulate also increase. A disadvantage in the use of coagulant aids is the increase in sludge quantity, a characteristic that can be minimized with recycling and reuse.
